We love cheese with more than one milk added. It creates a unique and more complex taste to the cheese and Valdeon is just that - a mix of goat and cow's milk. Incredible to look at, this blue cheese is aged in the natural caves in the mountains and wrapped in a sycamore or chestnut leaves after it has matured. A rich, spicy and strong blue cheese that is slightly similar to roquetfort and can be enjoyed in much the same way.
